Celebrate National Tattoo Story Day on September 16 with us by sharing the stories behind your tattoos!
According to The Hill, this is the % of Americans who have at least one tattoo
With Black folk leading the way, we are STILL marginalized and treated oppressively due to having tattoo (both seen and unseen) -
being easily misjudged and labeled as criminals or gang members who lack work ethic.
National Tattoo Story Day is where we can story changing the narrative COLLECTIVELY.
This special day was created to honor the unique and personal stories behind tattoos,
both large and small.
It's a great way to connect with fellow tattoo enthusiasts and share tales of your own ink.
Whether you have a funny story or meaningful meaning behind your tattoo, this day is sure to bring smiles all around. So grab a cup of coffee, sit down and start telling your stories – it will be a fun and memorable day for everyone!

On National Tattoo Story Day, we celebrate the powerful storytelling that tattoos can achieve. From colourful designs with vivid details to minimalistic black and white pieces, each tattoo holds a unique story that resonates with its wearer. Whether it's a homage to a loved one or a reminder to stay true to themselves, these tattoos remind us of the beauty and power that comes from using our own creativity and imagination!
Tattoos are an amazing way for people to express themselves without words. They are a form of art that is entirely unique to the person sporting them and can communicate volumes about who they really are as an individual. On National Tattoo Story Day, we honor those who choose to use their bodies as canvas for artwork that conveys something deeply personal about themselves.
Celebrating National Tattoo Story Day reminds us of how meaningful tattoos can be - not just in body art but also in our lives. They can be deep symbols of remembrance and commitment that remain forever etched in our skin. They can bring back cherished memories every time you look at them, making them more than just art - they're truly treasured keepsakes.
